It's complicated, and may be unavailable. Place an order and we will contact you with the expected arrival date.
In 1800s provincial northern France, Emma Bovary yearns for a taste of the luxury and romance she has imbibed from the popular novels she had read. Instead, married to a man with a second-rate medical degree and little ambition, and living far away from the enticements of Paris, Emma is stifled by the banality and emptiness of her existence. Desperately frustrated, she embarks upon adulterous affairs and voracious spending sprees. However, not only are her efforts to live with passion ultimately unsatisfying, but they also have devastating consequences...
About the Author
Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880) is regarded as one of the greatest novelists of all time. He is best known for his works "Madame Bovary" and "Sentimental Education," and for his stylistic perfectionism. Christopher Moncrieff has previously translated the work of Jean-Euphele Milce and Victor Hugo.
